We stayed at Samosir Cottages for three nights and really enjoyed our stay. Our room was very comfortable and had a balcony that overlooked the lake. The staff we're genuinely friendly and more then accommodating. The restaurant area was great with tasty food, fast wifi and live Batak music played every couple of nights. The pool was a pleasure to... More

I stayed here during the low season and I have yet to find a better better value room anywhere in the world. I had a lakeside room with the perfect panoramic view and a beautifully big balcony to enjoy it from. The nightly rate was insanely good--> and this is after travelling around Indonesia and SE Asia for over a... More

We checked into their new family room (1 king-sized bed + 1 single bed) with a small lounge area. The room was clean and spacious although lacking in amenities like coffee-making facilities, refrigerator, and safe. The swimming pool was very close by but the water was cold given the cool weather. Food at the restaurant was average but affordable. The... More

Haven't been to other cottages/resorts but so far so good. This cottage seems like the second last places beside toledo inn, i would say we have a comfortable stay despite all the miscommunications. Henry was very helpful in arranging transportation and day tour. The place is renovating hence the room was very dusty. The swimminh pool is nice enough to... More

This is one of the many hotels on the Tuktuk peninsula. They have a swimming pool, several spots to chill out during the day, a huge restaurant... They also have their local Batak band and dancers on most evenings. We had a room with lake view and hot water. It had no fringes but I was quite satisfactory. The bathroom... More

Spend two nights here. Great spot on the lake. You can use the swimmingpool from another hotel, 10min.walk. you can always swim in the lake, big rock underneath to stand on half way into the cold water. They have a show on fridaynight. Nice but simple.
